Great KOA!

The owners and staff are fantastic! It’s perfect for families with lots of things to do. Close proximity to the Olympic National Park and Strait for day trips. The grounds and facilities are well kept. There is some road noise, but it’s not bad.

Scenic location on top of a bluff located next to the Dungeness Wildlife Preserve.

Excellent views and scenic trails with semi-private campsites. It's connected to wildlife refuge where you can take a 5 mile stroll on a spit to a public light house where you can see across to Canada and other parts of the Sound. The campsites do not have electricity, water or sewer but on the other hand are rather inexpensive ($26 a night). There is a dumpsite on the way out of the park convenient for RVers who dry camped.

Beautiful!

A local told us about this spot as we ate breakfast at the Hungry Bear Cafe off the 101. There are a handful of great spots along 2918. We stayed next to the Sol Duc River and it was beautiful! This site didn't have a ton of room for parking but we had a motorcycle so it worked out. It is also pretty steep to get down to the site. There are two other nearby sites -- one that is smaller and has limited parking and is steep to get to and the other is very large with parking space for a larger vehicle.

Great little primitive camp area

Had a 6 RV spots and a number of tent sites. No power, no water, but there are compost toilets. Has fire rings and picnic tables.

Quite sweet spot on the river. No fee Decent 4G ATT cell coverage

Great park !

We stopped for lunch and decided to stay the night because it was so nice. Super clean bathrooms. The showers required tokens. Each token was $0.50 for 3 minutes. The check in office had a herb garden that was available for campers to enjoy use of. Our only complaint was that there were heavy equipment delivering construction materials early in the morning.

Amazing!!

Great campsite! All walkuo sites so make sure to get there early. Saw two bald eagles on the way in.

Comfy SKP Park nr Port Townsend

This RV park has full-hook up and dry camp sites for SKP members.

The location is a bit remote hence very quiet. I like that it's only about 10-12 minutes to Port Townsend, a bustling everything-you-could-possibly want hip town. Perfect for my tastes and needs. I dry camp which costs $7.50/nt. 

Works for me!

Beautiful but expensive

We pulled in late and there were plenty of sites available on the holiday weekend. The sites were big and had trails to the main trail around the lake. It's a pricy place at $50/night!

Closed!

This campground is closed! But there is dispersed camping all along NF 29!

Excellent campground

Few amenities but it’s quiet and tucked back. Easy to access and bathrooms are kept clean.

Our kids favorite campground

Our kids & dogs love this campground because of easy access to the beach. Great place to play boogie boards, skimboards, just playing in the waves, kites flying, building sand castles or just laying on the sand. 

Every time we goes there it always show as it'll rain, but we usually get at least 1 day of great sun and when it's sunny, it's the best place to be. 

This is one of the State Park that does not have the list of long rules. The park rangers are usually friendly and not too strict and your tent does not have to be on the pad. 

Loop 3 & Loop 4 have closer access to the beach and better sites. 

Usually clean facilities and showers. Each loop has 1 shower within the men and women bathrooms.

Cons:

When it's raining for more than a day, lots of sites can be muddy and swampy especially in loop 2.

Ocean is always cold no matter what time of the year.

Cozy

Bathrooms were very clean flush toilets, handicap accessible, camp sites were open and packed in. Our window looked into neighbors window. Fun was had walking on the beach at hood canal.

Enjoy the ocean breeze

This is the best place I ever set up a tent. To smell the ocean and it’s calming effects is probably the most relaxed I’ve felt in a long time. I just saw a sign on the road and decided to turn and I ended up here and was so happy there were still tent sites still available. It’s first come first serve and it’s worth it! I will come back again!

Beautiful

Great car camping situation. Able to rent kayaks at the lake. Little convenience shop too!

Nice homey feel

Family business. Super nice people with allot of amenities. Play equipment for the kids along with family outside & inside games. They offer free produce to the campers from their garden & free movie rentals.
The spaces were a little tight but for a few nights - it’s worth it.

Not a campground

Great park but not a campground.

Very nice

Beautiful place, I was only there once seem to be fairly crowded. Nice reservoir access for swimming. And a great hiking nearby.

Complicated

First off you must reserve ahead of time to get gate unlocked to enter. Once in no fire allowed. Beautiful lake to camp on. Possible cabin rentals.

My #1 favorite place to camp!

I have been camping here since I was a kid and it is still my favorite! Although now days it’s a lot more popular. It’s has 3 different types of beaches, nice facilities, and lots of wildlife. Pics are from last summer!

Not for camping

This place is not for camping it's an RV park for people that live in their RVs

Lovely

Great place quiet sound of the river roaring. Never super crowded

Amazing

Great place to camp with kids. Even better if you are lucky enough to get one of the sites that butts up against the cliff that overlooks the ocean.

Depends on the time of year

Depending on the time of year you come here. Will determine what kind of time you'll have. In the summer it's hard to get a spot and it's very crowded. But if you come in the spring and fall is a very lovely place to be.

Not really

It's not so much a campground as a hotel with camping spots for RVs only but very clean.

Pine tree sites in the park

$22 for a tent site but you will also have to pay or have a park pass to get into Olympic NP. Bathrooms are basic with no showers. Water spigots at restrooms. Sites are level and come with fire ring and table. Quiet and wildlife visible.

Rainforest camping above the beach

Most campsites are woven in amongst old growth rainforest trees. Bathrooms are basic, no showers. Water spigots at bathrooms. Tent, rv camping allowed with some sites on the beach bluff overlooking the ocean. $22 for tent camping comes with fire ring and picnic table. There is a general store .5 miles away at the lodge.

Beautiful and quiet

Went here for a few days and loved it. It's, it's own little piece of heaven. It's quiet and serene. The water of the sound is quite warm here as well.

Great small place

Amazing little campground all sites except for two or on the river quiet clean bathrooms

Great place.... But....

Great place lots of fun but it is not a campground… It's a summer camp for teenagers. I myself went there as a teenager.

Needs cleaning

Beautiful Park water access but local drug addicts over run it.
